However, the team could not be more excited about how their top two selections are progressing. CB Antoine Cason, taken with the 27th pick in the first round, stood out in San Diego's recent minicamp. He especially excelled during the camp's final workout, coming up with an interception and knocking down two passes. Cason will battle Paul Oliver for the nickel corner spot, but the Arizona product will see time regardless. The other rookie who's been impressing the Chargers' brass is third-round choice Jacob Hester. In addition to lining up at his natural spot, fullback, Hester took snaps at running back and as a slot receiver, as well. Head coach Norv Turner was said to have ridden him hard in minicamp, but only because Turner has big plans for the versatile talent. Look for Hester not only to block for and spell RB LaDainian Tomlinson but also to act as a safety valve in an improved passing attack.
